Cover Story (view full-size image): The textile’s multifunctional properties, such as photocatalytic self-cleaning, antimicrobial activity, UV protection, flame retardancy, thermal insulation and moisture management, hydrophobicity and electrical conductivity can be achieved by incorporation of ZnO into the textile structure. This review highlights the recent progress and strategies in the fabrication of ZnO-functionalized textiles, with an emphasis on understanding the specificity and mechanisms of ZnO action that impart individual properties as well as various parameters influencing ZnO’s performance and efficiency on textile fibers. Future directions in the use of ZnO for textile functionalization are identified as well. View this paper.
